A Guide to the Use of the Overhead Projector. Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 14.
A sequel to the booklet "A Review of the Different Types of Instructional Materials Available to Teachers and Lecturers," this booklet begins by discussing the main educational uses of the overhead projector and its various strengths and weaknesses. Basic guidelines for using the overhead projector effectively are then offered, which include ways to avoid some common problems. Finally, detailed guidelines for designing and producing overhead projector software are provided which cover the following topics: (1) the two basic forms of overhead projector software--the continuous roll and the single transparency--and their respective uses; (2) basic principles for designing overhead projector transparencies; (3) producing the transparencies by hand, with a typewriter, from opaque originals, or using a computer-based system; and (4) display techniques such as use of progressive disclosure, overlays, and animation. An annotated list of two items recommended for further reading is included. (MES)
